    • Barbera d'Alba Superiore DOC 2018

      Barbera d’Alba Superiore DOC 2018

      Fontanabianca has created here an elegant and densely packed Barbera. It shows the exuberance and potential of the grape while still maintaining a reasonable degree of restraint. It is neither marmalade nor too fruity, but pampers with a fine dose of dried cherry and plum aromas, along with some Spanish cedar wood with a fine citrus note. A well-balanced drop with a beautiful final. SUPERIORE.DE

      "A lightly fruity red with berry and walnut aromas and flavors. Medium body. Easy finish." James Suckling

      "The Fontanabianca 2018 Barbera d'Alba Superiore is a lovely wine with a darkly saturated side contrasted against a more contained and elegant mouthfeel. Those qualities make this wine a perfect candidate for a restaurant steak and potatoes. You get all the vivid brightness of the bouquet, with wild cherry and blackberry, with a good dose of refreshing acidity that cuts through the fat in your favorite foods." Robert Parker

    Things to know about
    Barbera
     

    The importance of the red Barbera grape in Piedmont and large parts of Lombardy can only be compared with the position of Sangiovese in central Italy. The Barbera is a robust vine. It is relatively hardy, insensitive to spring frosts and not particularly susceptible to disease. On top of that, it reliably generates economic returns. Because of the high growth strength, leaves and shoot tips have to be cut back several times in summer. The grapes do not ripen as late as those of Nebbiolo, but later than those of Dolcetto.

    Barbera wine is characterised by its intense ruby red colour and aromas often compared to wild cherries, violets or vanilla. Barbera produces wines with a low tannin content. However, the plants do not appear boring or flat because they are carried by a very strong acidity. The Barbera can retain this acidity during the ripening of the grapes, even at very high ripeness levels or during a rapid ripening process in hot climates. In combination with their fruitiness, successful Barbera wines therefore appear extremely full-bodied and rich. Among the most famous Barbera wines are the Barbera d'Alba, the Barbera d'Asti and the Barbera del Monferrato. In general, the Barbera d'Alba as the best. But the other two are hardly inferior, especially as the large DOC areas overlap at the edges and producers in these areas can choose how to label their wine. It is generally agreed that the vineyards located in the immediate vicinity of Alba and some scattered villages in the vicinity of Asti produce the best Barbera wines. SUPERIORE.DE
